ATLANTA (Ticker) - While Tom Glavine has a chance for his 50th career victory at Turner Field, he undoubtedly wishes more of them would have come as a member of the New York Mets.


Glavine takes the mound against his former team Saturday when the Atlanta Braves continue their weekend series against the Mets, who are surging once again.


The 40-year-old Glavine (2-2, 2.78 ERA) spent the first 12 seasons of his outstanding career with the Braves, winning 242 games and helping the team to the 1995 World Series title.


Since joining the Mets, however, the lefthander is only 2-9 with a 5.79 ERA against Atlanta and is just 1-5 with a 7.23 ERA at Turner Field.


Glavine will try to help the Mets post their fifth straight win after the team posted a 5-2 triumph in the series opener Friday behind seven strong innings from Pedro Martinez and two home runs from David Wright.


Losers of four straight games, the Braves will give the nod to John Thomson (0-0, 1.31), who also will be facing his former team. The righthander is 7-3 with a 3.20 ERA against the Mets in his career, including a 1-1 mark with a 2.84 ERA in three starts last season.


Thomson yielded one run in six innings Sunday against Washington but did not factor into the 3-1 victory. In fact, he has allowed a total of one earned run in 17 innings over his three starts this season without notching a decision.
